A Family Selfie



Yesterday my brother got married in a beautiful ceremony right outside of Philadelphia.
M was incredibly confused most of the day but happily danced around and posed for many photos.
This was after he cried, seeing my mom during the ceremony and being mad she was to busy watching my brother get married then playing with him.

Today we took the day off from school.
All morning M has been singing to me and "shushing" me like his Wheels on the bus lyrics.

He snuggled up next to me and watched he beloved Spongebob.
"SpongeBob! Bob! Fish! Mommy!"
...Now he's busy scattering his toys all over the living room and playing with my phone.

I am so grateful to watch M grow everyday.
I am incredibly grateful for my husband, M's daddy, who loves us so much.
It is really bizarre to think of my life before them, as they are completely my life now.

I cannot believe I'll have a two year old in four months.

What are you grateful for today?

My Toddler loves Meatballs and the Wheels on The Bus.



Today was insane, like most of my days lately.
I have been highly stressed and it's naturally taking a toll on my #momlife and #wifelife.
It seems as if there are not enough hours in a day (the usual) and I am sicken by the news (yet still sadly addicted to checking it).

I was crying listening to news radio on the way home from work today.
Stuck in traffic on the highway, when M made it all better...

M just started singing.
I was pleasantly surprised.

My 19 month old (he will be 20 months this weekend) started singing quite a medley of songs.

First, he started singing The Wheels on the Bus with the proper hand motions...
I could decipher "bus goes round and round," "shush shush shush" and "babies go wah wah wah."
When M finished, he immediately jumped into Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, making blinking motions with his little fingers.

He even started singing a song in Chinese. Yes, Chinese! I don't speak Chinese but M's teacher has been teaching him a song with the lyrics "you and me, me and you..." or something along those lines.

Then naturally, M continued on back into The Wheels and then got distracted by looking at his shoes and he started yelling "Feet! Feet! Feet," along with several giggles.

During his performance, I am actually surprised I didn't get into a car accident as I was watching him in my rearview mirror. This kid of mine never ceases to amaze me.

So where do the thought of Meatballs even factor into this post?


Well, in traffic on the way to school...I told M I would make him meatballs for dinner. He chanted, "Meatballs! Meatballs! Meatballs!" for about twenty minutes straight.

...So I guess I should go make those meatballs now.
Goodnight y'all.
